Induction of ethanolamine ammonia-lyase formation in Escherichia coli required both the ethanolamine and vitamin B12, and was gratuitous during growth on glycerol. Ethanolamine analogues inhibited enzyme activity and inhibited growth with ethanolamine as the the nitrogen source, but did not act as inducers. Enzyme formation was more rapid when ethanolamine was added to cultures containing vitamin B12 rather than the reverse. Enzyme formation was subject to catabolic repression, glucose and… CONTINUE READING
